Star Wars 40th Anniversary
I'm wondering whether this was the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Kinda you'll discuss it?

As you know, SW is one of the franchises FoTG is based on.

I'm kinda curious what other franchises you think FotG is based on.

Maybe FotG is adapting Tom Clancy novels into the Star Wars-universe? ;)

Check your text parser, Bryan, I think it's developed a couple bugs.

"Alpha Blue analyst Rya-Ja Buba has uncovered a plot by the Imperial Remnant to use a new secret stealth-based Star Destroyer that could upset the balance of power in the galaxy."

"Rya-Ja Buba returns in this thrilling prequel that has him inadvertently saving the life of important New Republic dignitaries before being pulled into the shadowy world of galactic terrorism."

"The third novel in the Rya-Ja Buba series sees our hero uncover a conspiracy by forces within the New Republic with the well-meaning goal of halting the illegal spice trade..."

quote from the author:  "Books four and five begin what I like to call 'the ascension of Rya-Ja Buba to the New Republic Senate and his eventual rise to actual leadership of the New Republic."

" 'Emergency Powers':  The newest book in the Rya-Ja Buba series following the surprising twist ending of 'Life Debt'..."


Sorry.  I just couldn't help it.
I didn't feel like putting anything here.  Then I did it anyway just to be contrary.

I didn't know as I've never heard of this film. I'll go watch the first film right now.


EDIT: OMG! Why did you make me watch that rubbish!

Karajorma, and what about Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012 and the upcoming Han Solo and Boba Fett movies? And when do you guys think the Star Wars 50th anniversary will be? :)

And have you heard that the Expanded Universe is being reorganized under the new non-canon "Star Wars Legends" banner to make way for a new line of continuity, led by principal projects Star Wars Rebels and the Star Wars sequel trilogy, to take shape? :)

Yes. In April 2014.

Dunno. But, you mean The Last Jedi?

Re: Star Wars 40th Anniversary
Guys, Bryan is completely immune to sarcasm.  You guys know this and, frustrating as his posting style is, all you're managing to do is be funny at his expense (and yes, I chuckled at zookeeper too).  And since he clearly doesn't understand that, it's mean.  Cut it out.

Bryan, you're posting on a gaming board dedicated to modding, and one of the mods here is based on the Star Wars universe.  It is a safe bet that you don't need to remind people that FotG is a Star Wars mod.  It's further a safe bet that the Star Wars 40th Anniversary does in fact mean that it has been 40 years since Star Wars was made.  I don't know if its language barrier, sloppiness, or obliviousness, but people are mocking your original post in this thread because it was a strange mix of haphazard sentence structure and condescending/clueless tone.

You have a habit of peppering your posts with sentences beginning with "What about"s and "Let me remind you"s that generally annoy people.  I'd strongly encourage you to stop using them in your posts.
"In the beginning, the Universe was created.  This made a lot of people very angry and has widely been regarded as a bad move."  [Douglas Adams]

Forget star wars, did anyone else think, "Holy cow, it's a Slowpoke. I forgot about those" when you saw the image?

Re: Star Wars 40th Anniversary
I knew that, MP-Ryan. It concerns the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Nothing more.

But when will be the next The Last Jedi trailer be out?
